I have lived on this property for over 50 years and it is a nurturing and spiritual place for me--completely private and still. For people who value those two things it is ideal. We also have built a playhouse/cottage in the woods where children can play independently and creatively and there are all kinds of animals on the place. I try to keep up with the calendar- full time but don't always meet that goal--sorry. House is rented about half the time, used for family part time and we also donate for auctions to raise money for non-profits. The best way to inquire about availability is to email me--I am very prompt. Also for special holidays and for the summer months we only rent the house for the week. Due to the covid pandemic we have changed minimum stays to three nights as cleaning is more extensive and expensive. There might be some flexibility but keep that in mind in your inquiries.
firstname.lastname@example.org purchased this farmhouse in 1970
Why email@example.com chose Bolinas
When we saw the property in the late '70's we did not hesitate--it was the ideal place to raise a family....as well as have tranquility and deep connection to nature as an important aspect of our daily lives. When my grandkids come their first response is often, "there is nothing to do here." I agree with them! Then, within an hour or two they are gone--into the woods enjoying the magical opportunities for creative and independent play that this property offers.
What makes this farmhouse unique
Watching the lagoon for its varied wildlife, gardening, horseback riding at a local rental 10 minutes away, animal care, and sitting in the meadow enjoying a drink at the end of the day while watching the kids roam over the meadow. Often, roasting marsh-mellows around a fire-pit at night. Living in the moment. We have been discovered as what we offer had become more universally important especially to families with children. It is very personally rewarding to my and my husband to see children of all ages sort of come alive during their stay here.
